New York Unemployment Extension - EUC08 Tier 4

Tier 4 EUC08: 6 week maximum unemployment extension.

If your New York unemployment benefits run out you might be eligible to receive extended unemployment benefits through one of the state or federal unemployment extension programs.

This federal unemployment extension programs is called Emergency Unemployment Compensation, 2008 (Also known as EUC08).

Emergency Unemployment Compensation, 2008 (EUC08) includes 4 stages, or tiers. Each tier has a different maximum time period for which your unemployment extension will last:

Tier 4 EUC08: 6 week maximum unemployment extension.

If you use up all of your regular unemployment benefits, in most cases you don't have to apply for an unemployment extension because the system automatically applies for you, if you are eligible. It is very important that you keep track of your benefits to make sure you receive your unemployment extension if you are eligible.

If you get close to your unemployment benefits running out, give your unemployment counselor a call to check to see what you have to do in order to get they unemployment extension.

Hi and thank you for your time and understanding in these hard times. Originally I was laid off and was told I was to receive 79 weeks of unemployment. A few weeks ago I received a letter stating that I was on tier 3. Four weeks ago I went to DSS to apply for Medicaid (or medicare as im not sure, im under 65 yrs old, sorry this is all new to me) and they advised me I still had roughly $1,700 worth of tier 3 benefits left. I called tonight after 12:00 am to claim for the week and I was told my benefits were exhausted. First of all I havnt received any where near the 79 weeks and hadn't received any notice in the mail. I was told Tier 4 is available so why am I not getting any warning and how is the State of NY helping. Please advise. Thank you for your time and understanding.
